Left tackle Duane Brown has finally ended his hold out and is back with the Houston Texans, after missing the first six games of the regular season.
I just wrote an article last week regarding the hold out of Houston Texans left tackle Duane Brown and how no one knew when he would finally return.
Well Brown is finally back.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reported on Monday morning that Brown has ended his hold out and has reported to the Texans’ team facility.
Rapoport says that Brown is healthy and ready to help his team.
I wouldn’t expect the Texans to trade Brown. If they really wanted to, they would have done so already. They’re in the middle of a race for another AFC South title and need him.
John McClain of the Houston Chronicle says that Brown could end up playing this Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks.
The Texans’ offensive line has been good enough to win without Brown, but having him back will only help rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson stand more comfortably in the pocket while scanning the field.
Brown could also be a big help for the Texans when it comes to getting running backs Lamar Miller and D’Onta Foreman going even more. Both backs have struggled to break out through the first six games of the season.
If the Texans can establish a strong running game, it will provide an even larger boost to an offense that’s already shown off their explosiveness through the air.
Comment below and give us your thoughts on Brown ending his hold out.
